    I guess you don't follow collegiate track and field.

    to put a finer point on it, she ran 10.78(A) and 22.04(A)

    She also ran 10.93 at the 1989 Texas Relays, which stood as the low-altitude CR until 2015.

    So cool! So, so happy for him and the obviously delirious Japanese fans and coaches, many who were very emotional. Yay!

    Just looked at his progression, was astounded to see that he has been under 10.10 since the age of 17. A youth performance that is very much elite (WJC 3rd in 2014).

    https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/japan/...e-kiryu-268525

    Not to sound pessimistic but he had a pr of 10.05 basic from 2013/age 17.

    His 9.98 (1.8m/s) is a 10.07basic, so it is not really a pr ?

    Can he ever match as a senior what he did at age 17 ? His consistency is paying dividends for their 4x1 team and that is something, but he is not getting faster.

    Watching the race, my first thought was that the NFL was going to give one of these little guys a shot as a light duty scat back to expand to the Nippon market. No I dont think it would work.

    I am sorry, I am not Dawn Sowel herself. I am just a big fan of her. I uploaded her 10.78 A in youtube...

    Most of the spread between 10.30 and 10.00 is due to typical seasonal, track, and local condition variations in the last 4 years. His actual PR, has not changed in 4 years and I doubt his top end speed has changed either.
